We describe an 80-year-old woman with neck pain that radiated to the back and left side of her head. Radiographs of the cervical spine showed calcification and ossification of the anterior longitudinal ligament of the spine from the C3 to the C7 level, erosive destruction of the lateral masses of the atlas and axis, and anterior atlantoaxial subluxation(More)
We have reported the case of an infant with bilateral temporal arachnoid cysts. In addition to the characteristic angiographic findings at both sides, a very distinct accumulation of radiopharmacon (99mTc-pertechnetate) in one cyst was demonstrated by routine intravenous scintigraphy. Previous complicating haemorrhage in the cyst appears to have caused both(More)
THERE ARE several direct methods to measure the flow velocity in human blood vessels, such as ultrasound, thermodilution, electromagnetic flowmetry and washout techniques. Ultrasound techniques have limited spatial resolution and can only be applied in easily accessible places, and thermodilution, electromagnetic flowmetry and washout techniques require(More)
Two patients with venous obstruction of the arm are reported. Obstruction in one patient was caused by a congenital web of the subclavian vein, in the second by granulomatous thrombophlebitis of the brachiocephalic vein. Both patients were successfully treated by operation. All obstructive symptoms subsided completely. Control phlebography one week and(More)
The hydroxyproline/creatinine ratio for two groups of healthy individuals and two groups of patients with a history of mammary and prostatic carcinoma without metastases was measured and compared with literature values. The hydroxyproline/creatinine ratio for healthy adults appears to be 1.4 (range 0.7--2.3). Furthermore, the influence of diet and gelatin(More)
In 24 patients with a pheochromocytoma, angiography revealed a multiple localization in 20%, extra-adrenal localization in 20%, and insufficient information supplied by aortography in 25%. On the basis of this experience, several proposals are advanced for optimal execution of the vascular study, including retrograde phlebography of apparently normal(More)
